07368000 Boeuf River near Girard, LA
LOCATION - Lat 32°28'52", long 91°47'52" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in sec.1, T.17 N., R.6 E., Richland Parish, LA, Hydrologic Unit 08050001, on downstream side of bridge on U.S. Highway 80, and 0.5 mi east of Girard.
DRAINAGE AREA - 1,226 mi².
PERIOD OF RECORD - October 1938 to current year. Daily gage heights as follows: 1886-94 in reports of National Weather Service; September 1925 to December 1931 in files of Corps of Engineers, Vicksburg District; since January 1932 in reports of Corps of Engineers, Vicksburg District.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. Datum of gage is 49.42 ft above NGVD of 1929 (levels by Corps of Engineers). Prior to Nov. 3, 1955, nonrecording gage at sites within 200 ft upstream. Prior to Oct. 1, 1966, at datum 2.20 ft higher. Prior to Oct. 1, 2000, water-stage recorder for Boeuf River southwest of Rayville (station 07368040) used as auxiliary gage for this station. Nov. 20, 1962, to Sept. 30, 1974, at datum 0.60 ft lower. See WSP 2120 for changes prior to Nov. 20, 1962.
REMARKS - Records fair above 30 ft³/s, and poor below. Large diversions above station for irrigation. Interconnecting system of bayous and drainage ditches produces an interchange of flow under varying conditions; hence, the drainage limits were more or less arbitrarily determined. Boeuf River and Bayou Lafourche basins are connected by canal upstream. In extreme floods, considerable flow from Bayou Bartholomew basin passes this station. Low level dam of steel sheet piles with concrete cap located approximately 7 miles downstream, pool stage 55 ft, since Dec 1991.
EXTREMES OUTSIDE PERIOD OF RECORD - Flood of May 7, 1927, reached a stage of 31.7 ft, present site and datum, (affected by overflow from Mississippi River).
